Powerful verse novel about relationships in school..

Advantages: Emotional, and honest look at sexual relationships in teens
Disadvantages: Told in verse, so the book is finished quite quickly

Without a recommendation from a friend on this one, I probably would have never picked up this book. And that would have been a shame. Even though it's quite a slim book and made for a quick read due to the way it's written in verse, A Bad Boy Can Be Good ...

Left a little cold....

Advantages: a promising beginning....
Disadvantages: which drifted off and had a plot which lacked...not what i expected
